6/10 Good

Not as good as we expected
We were never told what time breakfadt was served, nor was it in any of the rules or info. We were really surprised after the advertizing of free Wi-fi, that it could only be used in the office!! NO internet anywhere else. Then, the light outside our room shone thru the window, keeping our room lite up at night, so bright I could read! Lastly, we had trouble getting breakfast because their tour buses crowded the dining room, taking all the tables AND creating a long service line. People were in line ahead of us with dirty plates, indicating they had already gotten food once, and we still hadn't even gotten any.

It was okay …. Staff was nice… beautiful view
The view was spectacular and beautiful. They have an amazing view the Arenal Volcano. The staff was very polite and friendly. I think they need to update and upgrade. They first cabin we were placed in didn’t have a working TV, adequate plumbing or a functioning shower door. We had to demand to be moved but after that the stay was better. The breakfast was delicious they deserve a 10 out of 10. They have WiFi but it only works at the office and cafeteria area.

La Fortuna get away
Felt some of the bathroom amenities could be improved. Lighting in the bathroom definitely needs updating. Toiletries were a little lacking. Staff was friendly, helpful and professsional.

Lovely cabins great service
Lovely hotel with little cabins on a beautiful property. Great birds and even s sloth on the property breakfast is traditional and good. Service was great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It’s walking distance to the town and restaurants but perfectly far away to feel like your in nature. Would highly recommend.

The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The views and continental breakfast were great. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. You do start to hear alot of nature throughout the night which made it difficult to sleep and there is no wi-fi in the cabins. If you are looking to unplug, this place is amazing.

4/10 Fair

This is actually a lovely property, quiet and relaxing in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. My issue is that I was double charged for my stay at the end of March. I was a single traveller booked for 3 nights. On my second day, the hotel staff asked that I do them the favour of relocating for a night to another hotel close by. They offered the compensation of a night for this. I agreed, packed up my stuff and walked over to the other hotel, (it was almost the same property and apparently owned by a sibling). Then i packed up my stuff again and relocated back to the Montechiari. I had to check out early as I had an early transit. The receptionist hadnt arrived yet, so it was the owner (as I was told) who checked me out. I was told there was an additional charge of 90 dollars (USD) that I had to pay. I paid in cash but she couldnt find the reciept book. And then my transportation arrived and i had to leave. I had pre-paid through Expedia, including all taxes and I had not outstanding balances. I tried to solve this with Expedia, but after weeks, Expedia was told there were no additional charges. My best guess is that I was charged the fee for the other hotel room and for doing Montechiari a favour when they overbooked. Its unfortunate, it could have been a great experience, but it was soured by the hotel's staff/owner trying to cash grab. Just a cautionary thing to be warned about when booking with this hotel.
